Jane’s Walk is a volunteer-run, free festival with no corporate sponsorships or grants. However, we recognize the importance of artist labour and want to help contribute during this difficult time. Please let us know if you are interested in having prints made of your artwork. Windsor Jane’s Walk will facilitate the printing and sale of the art and the net proceeds will 100% go to the artist. We will not reproduce your work without your permission.


Windsor Jane’s Walk organizers retain the right to not publish artwork deemed off-topic or that violates copyright.


Please email all submissions to Windsor Jane’s Walk (info@WindsorJanesWalk.ca) any time before May 7 2021 or through the submission form.
